California is like a giant silver screen onto which our dreams of wide open spaces are projected.
From the shores of the Pacific to the giant sequoia in the Sierra Nevada, from the arid desert of Death Valley to the jagged peaks of Yosemite National Park, the state abounds in unique natural wonders. You can choose to explore them at the wheel of a comfortable all-American automobile or, if you are a fan of silence and solitude, on foot. Of course, you will need a vehicle if you want to embark on an unforgettable road trip down one of western America's most beautiful freeways, Highway 1, particularly stunning in Big Sur. Hugging the coast, it winds its way up and down wooded slopes and teeters on sheer cliff faces overlooking tiny creeks battered by the waves.
En route, you will fall in love with urbane San Francisco and its steep streets and the bucolic landscapes and excellent wines of Wine Country, before reaching the mythical Los Angeles where you can indulge in a film star fantasy at Hollywood Studios. Further south, San Diego, renowned for its relaxed approach to life, marks the last stage of your memorable journey in this mythical land.
